Seagreen foundation installation nearing completion


Seagreen Wind Energy Ltd revealed that foundation installation is nearing completion with 75% of jacket foundations installed at the project. The thee-legged jacket foundations each weigh approx. 2,000 tonnes, measure 95 metres tall  and are designed to support the wind turbines during
Seagreen wind farm's operational lifespan.
Seaway 7 is the EPCI contractor for wind farm's 114 suction jacket foundations which are being stored at the Port of Nigg, Cromarty Firth, the marshalling ports for the project's foundations.

The 1.1 GW project is Scotland’s largest and the world’s deepest fixed based offshore wind farm. It will consist of 114 Vestas V164-10.0 MW turbines, the first of which was installed in December 2021.

The project is a joint venture by SSE Renewables (49%) and TotalEnergies (51%). SSE Renewables continues to lead the development and construction of the project and will operate it on completion for its expected 25-year lifetime. It first generated power to the UK national grid in August. When fully operational, the wind farm is expected to generate around 5,000 GWh of renewable energy annually.
